Only 903 housing societies in Mumbai apply for land transfer
The lack of co-ordination between departments meant societies had to run from pillar to post for 29 important documents required for deemed conveyance

MUMBAI: The deemed conveyance campaign, from last December to June 30, has received a very poor response.

In Mumbai of 23,496 co-operative housing societies, only 903 applied for transferred of land from the builder/original land-owner to a housing society, or deemed conveyance. Of these, 549 have been cleared and 344 are being approved.

The co-operatives minister said the department was collating data on buildings constructed prior to the 90s and those thereafter. “The Chief minister had written to housing societies in Maharashtra to ensure conveyance is done. It would seem that most buildings already have obtained conveyance,” he said.

Across Maharashtra, there are 88,472 co-operative housing societies. Only 2,227 proposals were received and 1,324 were cleared, he said.

The department now plans to put up details of co-operative housing societies on its website, including names of managing committee members. “The societies will have to provide information on whether they have received conveyance or not. This too will be on the website,” he said. Patil said there was no need for another campaign as awareness had been created and it was for societies to come forward and apply for it.

The process, he said, involves three departments: The district deputy registrar before whom the application is made, the stamp duty registration office (revenue) and the local civic body that sanctions building plans.

Advocate Uday Warunjikar said a major reason for the poor response was that it did not apply to MHADA and CIDCO housing societies.

The lack of co-ordination between departments meant societies had to run from pillar to post for 29 important documents required for deemed conveyance.

The lack of manpower at the registrar’s office also hampered work.
